Difference between corolla and polypetalous




  1. (botany) the whorl of petals of a flower that collectively form an inner floral envelope or layer of the perianth


In addition, experimental flowers that matured a fruit (and therefore received a visit) had significantly larger corollas compared with corollas of flowers that did not initiate a fruit.

The second version occurs as Corollary 2 to Proposition 7 and was thought of as a method of expanding solutions of fluxional equations in infinite series.

Yes, it drubs the Corolla, but the current Corolla has been around since the Earth cooled (2006).

  1. having a corolla composed of many separated or distinct petals


Flowers that, under ordinary circumstances, are gamopetalous, become, in some instances, multiplied by the formation of additional segments, just as in the case of polypetalous corollas; but in these cases the corollas become polypetalous, their petals do not cohere one with another.

It is more common among polysepalous and polypetalous plants than in those in which the sepals or petals are united together.

In the case of polypetalous, or rather dialypetalous flowers, the petals may be very largely increased by multiplication, as in roses, anemones, pinks, &c. In the last-named genus the number is often so much increased that the calyx splits from the tension exercised on it by the increasing mass within.
